Good bargain and easy access thanks
I stayed for 4 days. Bad room service. We had to pay for extra towel
Next time I will stay there if having promotion
The size of the room and location is good. the room is a bit old but overall it is still a good place to stay for a large pack and price is very reasonable as well
Excellent! everyone works with service mind.
No free shuttle to hospital, when I asked how I can go to the hospital, he/she told me to take taxi instead. Also, the room smells musty.
Very convenient. very comfortable. no parking issues
Nice. place for holiday and honeymoon
Good location but rooms need to be refurbished
Had a bad experience with the service. When we checked in, there was no hot water. Called operator, said will send someone to repair. Waited till dinner time, still no one came. We had to boil water in kettle to bath our baby. The next morning no one came eventhough reminded them many times. Until we requested to talk to the supervisor or hotels manager, then only someone came to fix something that took like 5 minutes only. otherwise, room appears clean eventhough a bit run down. No lift from basement parking so a bit difficult if travelling with a stroller or wheelchair.

Spacious room and kids friendly pool
Registration at the counter was good and fast. The room is very much indeed spacious. It can even fit six adults comfortably except without bed. However the night curtain was a bit smelly with some plasticity smell. The pool area was nice with slides, floats and dry play area suitable for families with kids.

Convenient location
The hotel location is very convenient to malls and quite a few coffeshops around the hotel. It's an old hotel but was comfortable enough. Housekeeping needs improvement though because upon check in, there are no towels provided. Requested for towel to deliver but when came back hotel at night, still no towel delivered. Felt a bit frustrated because feels tired wanted bath and rest early but not able to do so because no towel. Stayed for 4 days...first 2 days no hot water. After "repaired" the remaining 2 days need to let water run at least 15 mins for hot water. Luckily it's not a family holiday with our children. Nice sea view from our room. Overall stay is ok.

Shockingly unpleasant room
I recently stayed at the Gurney Resort in Georgetown, Penang island, as part of a 2-week family vacation in Malaysia. I booked 5 nights at the hotel through Travelocity but we checked out after only 2 nights. That's all we could stand because our room was so unpleasant (room 2402, a 2-bedroom suite). My wife was unable to sleep because the smell was so bad. It made us think of an old abandoned house that had not been used for many years. When we checked into the hotel the woman at the reception insisted that I pay for the 5 nights up front, which, unfortunately, I did. But after seeing how awful the room was - including a much stained carpet, holes in the sofa and the plastic curtains (yes, plastic!), dodgy looking repairs to the tiles in the bathroom, and so on, we immediately started searching the Internet for another hotel, which we moved to after spending two nights at this hotel. One evening we ordered some food through the hotel's in-room dining service but were not impressed with this service either. We had to wait a long time and the person who eventually brought us the food refused to give me a receipt. After complaining about this, he eventually said he would give me a photocopy of the receipt, but after he had left we did not hear from him again. We were also disappointed by the location. Since it was across the road from the ocean, we were expecting there to be a nice beach. But all we saw after we arrived were lots of dredging vessels on what looked like some mud flats and no beach. We later found out that the beach had been swept away by the big tsunami that hit the area a few years ago. I requested a refund for the last three nights that we did not stay at the hotel, but for which I had paid, but Travelocity later informed me that the hotel had "declined" to refund the money to me. Due to our very disappointing experience at this hotel, I would certainly not recommend it to anyone.

Stay in Gurney Hotel
The hotel is outdated. The room we stayed in, Room 3303, was not clean. The carpet in the ensure was dirty and torn. Wi-Fi did not work in the main bedroom but only work in the lounge. The air-cond was blowing out water and ice. Overall, the condition in the hotel was poor and in need of a lot of renovation. I certainly will not recommend anyone to stay in this hotel.

Resort Hotel??
We originally had reservation for four nights in this so called resort hotel. We checked out after the first night and went somewhere else. Exterior view of the hotel is very nice, huge lobby but the room is completely the opposite. Huge room with outdated furnishing and it is in disrepair. It has a safe in the room and it is not bolted to anything, anybody can just simply walk away with the safe. Room service was a joke. We definitely will not recommend this "hotel" to anybody.
